Remarks & Notes 
Recently delivered Railserve Leaf DKPX 2543 shoves a 10 car cut of Central Appalachian coal into the rotary car dumper. Plans are to remove the rotary dumper later this year and convert it to bottom dump only. More information from the Railserve website: The Railserve LEAF® Locomotive uses a single Cummins QSX15-L3 600 hp Genset to minimize fuel usage and significantly reduce emissions while maintaining the performance of a traditional switching locomotive. The Railserve LEAF was created specifically for industrial in-plant and commercial yard switching applications. It maximizes tractive effort at speeds less than 10 mph. The Railserve LEAF reduces NOx emissions and particulate matter 84%, meets EPA emissions standards for Tier III diesel engines and reduces fuel consumption 45-60% over a conventional locomotive.
